This month I bring you news from some of the London fashion colleges BA shows and I did try my level best to attend most of them. The first up, was Central St Martins show, this was staged at their new location in the refurbished Bagley's Warehouse (a one time mecca in clubland) Kings Cross. I wasn't alone, Blitz Club original goers Andrew Logan, Mo Tomliey- an ex CSM Student and Grayson Perry were there too. As for the St Martins of late, they have become a centre stage for foreign paying students, who displayed their vision of the future of fashion. Is in tune with European taste?, that's debatable, what I can concur, is that the students work brought a smile to spectators faces, whether it will ever sell is irrelevant, given the money these kids have to be self indulgent. www.arts.ac.uk

My next foray into college world, was Royal College of Art at Kensington Gore building. There I sat front row, next to Claudia Croft from the Sunday Times Style magazine. We exchanged few words, focusing on the 30 students across the many disciplines; ladieswear ; menswear ; knitwear. For me, the collections had more going for them in a commercial sense, with highly imaginative use of fabrics and ideas. These students had mastered the art of restraint and had sufficiently toned down their products to make a wearable elegant statement. www.rca.ac.uk

Full Story


‘Never Enough’ is the album opening track that is the musical ‘all guns blazing’. It merges thundering Moroder-esque basslines with layers of Robin Simon’s effected guitars. Real drums with copious amounts of fills and Giorgio Moroder style “Haas” effect snare power the track along. The highlight however is the main keyboard riff which features boldly in the intro and chorus. The lyrics reflect a stormy and failing relationship and set the tone for a more personal approach to the song-writing on this latest Visage album.
